Abstract

The topic of this action research project is music and if it can increase physical activity in PE. The participants were 23 seventh and eighth grade middle school students (13 boys and 10 girls). The purpose of the study is to see if by playing music during the warm-up and fitness portions of the lesson physical activity would increase. This was done by the participants wearing pedometers to count steps during activities as well as student being monitored for MVPA. Initial findings have shown a slight increase in physical activity while music is playing compared to when it’s not.
